Our 15th Season Begins Monday!

Dear AdventuRiders,

It doesn't look very much like Spring out the window today, but let's hope for better weather next week.

Anyhow, now is the time to:
  1. Find your bike.
  2. Pump up your tires! Riding on low tires is no fun at all, and believe me, your tire have lost air over the winter.
  3. Find your helmet.
  4. Take your bike (and helmet) out for a test ride to make sure everything is working properly.
  5. Review our Release and Waiver and bring a signed copy to your first ride, or we will have copies available for you to sign.
  6. You can give us a try for free, and when you decide that this is a great physical and social outlet, you can:
  7. Sign up for AdventuRides at :
We still offer two pass options, the descriptions have changed a bit though.

The One Day A Week Pass entitles you to ride one day a week during the season. If you miss a week, come twice the next week. We don't keep track, its on the honor system. 
You may ride a different day each week if you choose. Here are your choices:
  • Monday - morning and/or afternoon Recreation Rides. 
  • Wednesday (usually) - Exploration Ride. 
  • Friday - Fitness Ride.
The Season Pass entitles you to all the all the rides you want during the season.

Here are the rides planned for next week. I will send out more details and a reminder before each ride.

The Nashua River Rail Trail still had quite a bit of snow on it north of Pepperell even before the latest snow. So, I designed a couple of new rides that should be snow free by Monday. We will meet in East Pepperell Center at the gravel Rail Trail Parking lot.

The Monday morning Recreation Ride will take us south on the NRRT to Groton Center and then to the new Surrenden Farm conservation area. From there, we will check out the mural under the bridge on our way back to Pepperell. The route is mostly on the rail trail, basically flat and about 14 miles. There is a tiny bit of gravel at Surrenden, but a road bike will work fine. Here is a map.

The Monday afternoon Recreation Ride will take us north across the new covered bridge to Hollis, NH along the Nissitissit River. From there we turn back to historic West Pepperell, avoiding as many hills as possible, to check out the shrine and the pound. The route is about 12 miles, a bit hilly (250 feet gain) and there are some smooth dirt roads along the way. A sturdy road bike will work.  Here is a map.
